you teach this course -- class at georgetown. >> right >> jimmy: about jay-z. why did you pick jay-z >> well, he's one of the most extraordinary poets we have in american culture today as i call him in the book, "robert frost with a brooklyn accent." "rita dove with a jesus piece. i mean, he's a guy who understands poetry you've got poetic genius over here in tariq. >> jimmy: yeah >> one of the greatest rappers ever [ cheers and applause and you've got jay-z, who combines serious literary devices, poetry and that kind of stuff, with the common everyday experiences of human beings and he's able to put it together in such a powerful fashion. so, when i teach the class, i tell them, we're not just going to come in here and go, "hey, some dope lyrics and jay is cool." we want to get to the depth. what was brooklyn when he was born what was 1969? he arrived the same day that fred hampton died. what does that mean politically? what does it mean for the projects when he says, "you know why they call the projects the projects because it's a project, wherein we are the experiment. so, i wanted to probe his consciousness to see the
political context in which he was born and then understand him as a figure and an icon in american society so, that takes a lot of history, sociology, politics then, we get to the dope lyrics [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah you break the book down into three categories >> um-hmm. >> jimmy: can you tell us what those are? >> the first one is hustling uh, the historian walter macdougall says that, "hustling is the central motif of american history, both in the sense of go-getters and people who are on the take." so, i try to look at what jay-z talks about. you know, he explains why he became a hustler when he says, "all the teachers couldn't reach me and my mama couldn't beat me hard enough to beat the match pain of my pop not seeing me so, with that disdain in my membrane, got on my pimp game. forget the world my defense came. so, he's explaining, a father absence and hurting pain at the house drove him out into the world. so, i talk about how he hustled selling drugs, but how he transformed that hustling from the street into to the suites to become a ceo. >> jimmy: yeah, wow. look at that >> yeah. >> jimmy: i mean, this is
a great -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: "made in america" is exactly a great title for that because -- >> oh, yeah. i mean, it is american it's american. i mean, american as american can be and then, the second part is poetry, where i talk about, as great as he is and as clever and witty as he, is people miss the kind of literary inventiveness. you know, he said, "look, i would write it, if y'all could get it but being intricate will get you wood, critic on the internet, they're like, 'you should spit it. i'm like, 'you should buy it.' that's good business." that's a rhetorical device and he's saying, "don't just have me out here spitting it pay for what i'm talking about. [ light laughter ] and then the third one is politics, where he talks about a wide range of things you know, we know "when the remmy's in the system, ain't no tellin' will i love 'em? will i diss 'em? an allusion to biggie. but he also talks about a lot of other stuff besides bling and bacchanalia and gleeful booty. he talks about common issues that people can deal with. he was saying, "bin laden been happening in manhattan anthrax was crack back when. back then, police was al qaeda to black men." so, he's talking about the tension between police departments and black people and trying to break that down.
so, i felt those three categories allow me to explore just how smart a guy he is and also how observant he is about american culture >> jimmy: wow, i think it's fantastic. it's fascinating thank so much for being here [ cheers and applause >> yeah. >> jimmy: you've got to come back >> i got to come back, man >> jimmy: you got to come back, buddy. >> i got to come back and do what daisy did [ laughter ] >> jimmy: right? it was good. if jay-z is ever sick, you've got to get up on stage [ light laughter ] >> well, he called into my class and talked for an hour once >> jimmy: did he really? >> oh, yeah, yeah. he was with beyonce in london and he called in and spoke to us and it was beautiful so, i was trading lyrics with him. sometimes i'll text him some lyrics i make up and i said, am i crazy texting jay-z? but, hey, i text tariq i text jay [ laughter ] i'm just trying to do it i write books like rappers write hooks. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: michael eric dyson [ cheers and applause "jay-z: made in america" is available tomorrow we'll be right back with a a performance from noah cyrus featuring leon bridges stick around, everybody.
